We share a reception with Callaghan Innovation. Please check in at Callaghan Innovation reception when you arrive and someone from the team will meet you there.

Reception for the site is located on the ground floor of the (former) library building. External visitors need to sign in using the kiosk and wear a guest lanyard while on site.


Driving is the most convenient way to get to us using the directions above, but the campus can also be reached using public transport and a 10 minute walk.

There are two Visitor Only parks adjacent to the Callaghan Innovation Reception, but they are frequently full. Please find somewhere to pull over, register at Reception and the Ferrier staff member you are visiting will come and escort you through to an on-site park.


The 84 bus from Wellington Railway Station is the most direct (with the Parkside Road stop only five minutes walk from Reception), it but runs only morning and evening. Alternatively, take the 81 or 83 bus from Wellington Railway Station to Hutt Park Raceway and walk the remaining distance.


Take a train to Woburn Station from Wellington Railway Station and walk the remaining distance.
